East Nashville, TN Homes for Sale

Downtown gets most of the headlines, but many locals will tell you that East Nashville is the best spot in the city. It may be just a walk across the bridge from Downtown, but it cultivates a low-key cosmopolitan lifestyle that pairs urban living with a neighborhood feel. While purists would argue that this district is limited to just a few original neighborhoods and the 5 Points area, modern conceptions of East Nashville include the real estate between I-24 and the Cumberland River until they hit the Briley Parkway. Many of Nashville’s most walkable communities, like East End and Historic Edgefield, call this area home.

About East Nashville, Tennessee

How's the East Nashville real estate market?

East Nashville homes are as varied as almost any district in the entire city. The development of East Nashville dates back to near the end of the Civil War, as the South’s first dedicated suburbs started to emerge. Historic Edgefield, the first of these, still features a few homes dating back to this time period. In spite of a few economic depressions, tornadoes, and a historic fire, the area kept sprouting homes as farmland was sold and subdivided. The result is a diverse mix of centrally-located single-family homes that can be surprisingly affordable. Most of the community’s original homes were three-to-four bedroom bungalows and cottages on small lots that maximized the space close to Downtown Nashville. These old-fashioned homes still dot the market, helping to keep the average East Nashville sale price at an accessible $393,000 over the past twelve months. While these properties protect home values from widespread new construction, more and more houses are undergoing renovations that bring an updated feel to the historic neighborhoods. Also, plenty of houses have recently been replaced by beautifully-modern single-family homes that often sacrifice a little yard for coveted square footage. Generally speaking, the closer you are to Downtown, the more you can expect to pay for each unit of space. In the most entrenched neighborhoods, like Lockeland Springs and Shelby Hills, homes usually sell for at least $700k. If you’re looking for more affordable options, areas like Inglewood and East Hill are full of accessibly-priced properties that are still plenty close to the action. While East Nashville may boast plenty of detached single-family homes, condos are gaining more and more traction within the market. These small-scale operations are some of the trendiest living situations in the city and provide a pleasant alternative to the downtown highrises and the sprawling developments so ubiquitous in other parts of the Nashville-metro area. These units, as well as the upscale apartment complexes clustered within the area, are ideal for renters looking to test out the urban life. Rent usually runs from above $1,000 to over $2,000 per month, and many consider it a bargain to live in one of the Southeast’s trendiest spots.
